This fourth edition of Community Care Practice and the Law has been fully updated to reflect the rapid and continuing legal, policy and practice changes affecting community care. It provides comprehensive and jargon-free explanations of community care legislation, as well as other areas of law directly relevant to practitioners, including the NHS, disabled facilities grants and housing adaptations, asylum and immigration, mental capacity, human rights, disability discrimination, health and safety at work and negligence – and a range of legal provisions relevant to the protection and safeguarding of adults. Apart from the burgeoning legal case law and ombudsman investigations, changes from the last edition include coverage of the Mental Capacity Act 2005, legal implications of 'self directed care' and 'individual budgets', changes to direct payments and 'ordinary residence' determinations. In particular, new guidance applies to the high profile issue of NHS continuing health care. The book is an essential guide for practitioners and managers in both the statutory and voluntary sectors, policy makers in local authorities and the NHS, advocates, lawyers and social work students.

This short guide cuts through the confusing mass of legislation to provide a concise and jargon-free explanation of current community care practice and the law. In clear and simple language, it explains the legislation directly relevant to practitioners, including: rules about how people in need get an assessment from local authorities; the assessment of need itself; eligibility for actually getting a service (and the "fair access to care" policy); charging for services; ordinary residence; topping up of care home fees; assessing informal carers; and the rules about asylum seekers. It provides an overview and analysis of high profile issues such as direct payments, personal budgets and the policy of personalisation and National Health Service provision, including the vexed issue of NHS continuing health care. It also highlights the duties placed on local authorities and the NHS, the various tensions underlying community care, and the consequent shortcuts - both lawful and unlawful - that local authorities and the NHS feel obliged to take. Quick Guide to Community Care Practice and the Law is an essential resource for busy practitioners at all levels as well as managers in both the statutory and voluntary sectors, policy-makers in local authorities and the NHS, advocates, lawyers and social work students.

A practical understanding of the law is essential for all those involved in the manual handling of adults and children (as patients, clients or pupils), whether in 'hands-on', managing, commissioning or advisory roles. To this end, Manual Handling in Health and Social Care presents an accessible overview of manual handling legislation, legal case law, national guidance, policy and practice. Applicable primarily to England, Scotland and Wales, it covers both employee safety under the Manual Handling Operations Regulations and wider health and safety at work legislation, and also patient and client entitlement under community care, NHS and human rights legislation. A stand-alone overview of manual handling law and practice is followed by more in-depth material, in A-Z format and fully cross-referenced, which allows the reader to look up issues for quick access to further information. In particular, it contains an extensive collection of case law relevant to health and social care and digested in summary form. Topics include rehabilitation, risk assessment, care plans, equipment provision, documentation of decisions and cumulative strain injury. Addressing the tensions sometimes existing between the health and safety of employees, the needs and wishes of service users and limited resources, this book provides professionals, managers, front-line staff and legal advisers with an understanding of law as a useful and practical tool to assist in solutions to manual handling problems.
